Neuromorphic Control for Micro Aerial Vehicles (Prof. Simon Levy)

1 student is sought for a project on “Neuromorphic Control for Micro Aerial Vehicles” with Prof. Simon Levy that will begin on 6/10/2024 and last for 10 weeks

Project Description:

The student and I will continue my ongoing research in using neuromorphic (i.e., biologically realistic) sensing devices and control algorithms for micro-scale (100mm, 100grams) indoor aerial vehicles, as described in Levy, S.D. (2020) Robustness Through Simplicity: A Minimalist Gateway to Neurorobotic Flight. Frontiers in Neurorobotics, 16 March 2020. Our goal is a follow-up to this publication in the same journal.


Student should have completed the Computer Science major through the level of CSCI-209 (Software Engineering).

Special Comments

Student is not required to take any specific course(s) with me. Having been invited to spend part of summer 2024 as a visiting professor in the TENNLab at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, I anticipate an opportunity for the student to spend some of the 10 weeks working with me and my colleagues there.
